Description :

First Edition [1991], so stated. Near Fine in Very Near Fine DJ: The Book shows indications of careful use: very slight spine lean; minimal shelving wear along the bottom edge of the boards; the binding remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. The DJ shows only the mildest rubbing; price intact. Overall, remains structurally sound and tightly bound, showing barely a hint of wear in a handsome DJ: remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. 144 pages. Profusely illustrated in color and black & white. Hobby Craft Series. Hardback with DJ. Rohana Darlington takes traditional patterns and gives them a unique twist, incorporating nature and history into her garments. Also like Starmore, Darlington provides background narrative for each pattern and adds helpful notes on color and technique. This is not a book for the novice knitter, unless she is ambitious and ready for a challenge. It is a fascinating read with many beautiful patterns. The author also delves into history, visiting the National Museum and the Aran Islands as well as other places to delve into the history of Knitting in Ireland and doesn't perpetuate the Aran Jumpers Myth, she does detail some of the myths that have built up around it, but clearly stating that these myths have now passed into part of the story of the jumpers. She also notes which ones are newer designs than others. When she was finished talking with some people she went back to the National Museum and lodged her notes with them. What's interesting about them is the completely different slant she has taken to Ireland and Irish design. She's exploring more of the heritage than I've seen many designers do and using it in different ways. A book that it would be interesting to use for concepts and ideas and maybe for some designers to look at to see if they too can play with the concept of Irish beyond cabling. This book will sit quite comfortably on the shelf with my treasured Alice Starmore collection, when, of course, I am not knitting from it!. N° de réf. du libraire 44664

Synopsis : The author has investigated the development of textiles in Ireland and the result of her research is this collection of 24 hand-knitted designs, each inspired by a part of Ireland's history and culture. The designs include garments for men, women and children and even a bedspread created from a 19th century pattern. They range from easy knit to the more challenging. Each design has a short historical introduction, comprehensive knitting instructions, colour photographs of the garment, colour chart and the inspirational source behind the garment.
